Opportunities Knocking::Measuring Up

“When nobody around you seems to measure up, it's time to check your yardstick.”
~ Bill Lemley

I don't know about you, but I have a problem with measurements.

It is not even that I am stuck in ye olde British way of measuring with yardsticks and I am trying to convert myself to that newfangled metric system {I think I am too old of a dog to learn that 'new' trick}, I just have a problem with making my jewelry come out to the length that I think it should be. Long necklaces are too short. Short necklaces are too long.......

...Go read the rest of the post over at
Art Bead Scene.

I am delighted to be writing a monthly column on Art Bead Scene I call "Opportunities Knocking" {can you guess why?--------------->}.
I would love to hear your feedback on this post, either here or over there.

You know I love a challenge. Do you have a topic you would like to challenge me to write about, either here or there? Do tell!

Enjoy the day!

I do have a topic, one I"ve been thinking about. Why is it that we as mothers or women take care of everyone else's needs but ours? Why is is that if anyone else needs something, we get it for them. But when it comes down to us, we say no?

Why can't we splurge on ourselves? What makes us say NO?

Hey Erin, that's awesome!

Not sure if it's my computer, but I can't get the Art Bead Scene link in this post to work, but I'm sure I can pop over there via your sidebar button.

Hi Erin,
I loved your post at ABS! You definately have a way with words, especially the little disclaimers you add:) I've been reading your blog for a bit, but since I don't have a blog, I don't usually leave comments. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your post. And if I can think of a good topic for you, I'll let you know :)
